Oil Company’s Plans to Expand Refinery Requires GPR to Locate Utilities

In October of 2015, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. (GPRS) was contacted by an oil company in order to locate any anomalies such as electrical lines, water lines & transporting lines at their refinery in Tampa, FL. The contractor needed to make certain of where anomalies were in order to move forward with their expansion plans. The company contacted GPRS of Tampa, Florida in order to know where the lines were located in order to avoid the anomalies.

Justin Rasanow of GPRS was contacted in order to perform the survey at this location. Using our 400MHz antenna radar equipment and RD-7000, we were able to map out all of the anomalies which were running through the areas of concern as well as provide depths to the tops of the anomalies found. The contractor was pleased with our results and felt relieved that they could move forward with their expansion planning.

Below is a photo taken on-site which depicts Justin Rasanow scanning the area of concern using our 400MHz antenna.
